Project Overview

This project will implement watershed load reduction practices to restore the top priority water body in the Carnelian Marine St. Croix Watershed District in northeast Washington County. Recently completed prioritization and targeting efforts have identified several Best Management Practice opportunities around goose Lake, the number one priority for implementation practices. Additional focused site assessments and project concept planning have resulted in the identification of four projects that are ready for implementation: two iron-enhanced sand filters, one sand filter, and one ravine stabilization. These projects, in total, will reduce annual phosphorus loads by 16.8 pounds to Goose Lake. These, in combination with a ravine stabilization project completed in 2012, are expected to achieve 54% of the total phosphorus Total Maximum Daily Load reduction goals for Goose Lake.
